The 3rd Eye Chakra

The Third Eye Chakra 

The 6th chakra is the Third Eye Chakra. It’s location is right in the center of your forehead right between your eyebrows and it radiates down to your mouth and up to the top of your head. In Sanskrit it’s Anja. This chakra opens up your mind to the five sense and to information that goes beyond the material world.  It connects to your sensory perception, your intuition or psychic energy.

The color associated with this chakra is indigo. The element is light. The planet is the Sun and the Moon. The sound is “om” which you can chat during meditation. The yoga poses that you can do for this pose are child’s pose, downward facing dog, extended puppy pose and head to knee pose . Eat foods that are purple as well as dark cocoa or chocolate. When you are meditating visualize a glowing purple light spinning over your Third Eye.

When your chakra is balanced you feel in tune with the physical and material world. You receive psychic information frequently. When it’s out of balance you will feel forgetful, have nightmares, judgmental and non-sympathetic. Physically it can cause headaches behind your eyes or issues with vision and sinuses. Most people have an underactive Third Eye Chakra as we live in a world that tends to invalidate intuitive development. So we close off our 3rd eye and ignore our own psychic experiences. To balance this chakra, remind yourself that you are a creature of the Earth. Connect your body to the Earth. It will take practice to energize this chakra. You need to devote time to solitary meditation, focus on signals outside your physical body and listen to your spirit and recognize how it feels.
